Back with a Tiffany Box Blue Mirror Makeover!

Hello luvlies,

Wondering if any of you are still with me?  Boy have I been a slack blogger!  At first I told myself I’d wait until the kiddies went back to school… well ahem… that was a month ago now.  Time just slips by.  Whilst I have been neglecting my blog… I do have to fess up about something.  I kind of feel like I’ve been having a sultry affair…. ;o  …that is cheating on my blog.  The object of my recent affection and attention is Instagram.  It’s so quick and easy to check in and post pics… I love how I can keep up to date with people and chat too.  I’ve made many lovely cyber friends… do pop over and say hi!  I’m @coastalhomelove 🙂

So whilst I love hanging out on Instagram… there’s no place like home, and this little blog feels like my virtual home.  So I’m back to remove the drop cloths and dust off the cobwebs.   I thought I’d start by sharing a recent makeover.  I do love a good before and after story, especially one with a happy aqua ending 😉

So here’s a before pic of a large mirror I purchased recently…  the usual fake tan orange pine, but with a gorgeous shape;

And after….  in her glorious Tiffany Box Blue colour.  I used a colour called Pacific Lagoon and added white until I got the perfect shade of aqua 🙂

So after having most of the Summer off from blogging…  I’m back, on this wildly Wintery first day of Autumn… I even got to wear boots today!  Here’s to the change of season!

Do you love Instagram too?  Do you look forward to the change of Seasons?

    Mirror looks gorgeous Jo, and yes now I am in Oz I do look forward to it cooling down a bit!

    I have been and done Instagram, loved it for a while then stepped back and questioned the amount of time I spent there and wondered really what I was gaining by sharing photos of how wonderful my life was, lol. It is all a bit fake really…just like alot of blogs that post so often but always about nothing. I love that you post projects when you have one, and it doesn’t matter the time between posts. That sums up my blogging pattern too 🙂

    So anyway I decided to delete my Instagram account and put more attention into actually just living my life without sharing it all with complete strangers (as lovely as some of them are!) I must say I haven’t missed it at all 🙂

    xx Karen
